I plan on finishing 3 projects this month for the Charming Girls' Quilt Club. First up is the zig zag quilt for the Old Red Barn Quilt Along...I have a long way to go with this one. I only have half the blocks cut...but I'm sewing the first half together...not as easy as I thought matching all those points...and batiks are not the easiest fabric to put pins in. I plan to have this top done and hopefully the batting and backing. I don't think I will get to the quilting, but you never know.
Second is a fun little scene from Cherry House Quilts Quilt Along...Little Bouquet. I kind of went off track a bit and made this farm type scene and added different flowers...I still have alot to do. I have to make the stems and leaves, as well as a few more flowers...then batting and backing and quilting. It will be done by the end of the month.

Third project is the Leafy Treetops Quilt Along with
I have to finish the borders on this and add the applique tree limbs, leaves and birds, as well as batting, backing and quilting.

Whew..............That's it for now...have a great day!


  1. Wow wee......that lot will keep you busy!!! Lovely quilts!

  2. You are ambitious! I like that!! Gives you something to work towards. I can't wait to see the zig zag quilt in the Batiks. I was smart to not join that quilt along. Too much going on as it is. Have fun and get sewing!

  3. Wow, that is some list...I wanted to join the zig-zag quilt along but I have some quilts I want to get done for Christmas. But I did have fun on the original ORB quilt along. Anyhoo, I just love the Little Bouquet quilt. I mean LOVE it! Especially the flowers - sunflowers. I can't wait to see it done. Have fun quilting!

  4. Good luck with your projects this month! The zig zag quilt will be fun once it's done. Love the sunflowers in your second quilt, they make me smile :^)

  5. Wow!!! You've done an amazing job...I love you farm scene, and flowers!

  6. Gorgeous projects! I just LOVE that farm scene!
